GU CHEWS (1 DOUBLE SERVE).
Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of long duration activities. The 90-calorie packet contains carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
ELECTROLYTES maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration.
CARBOHYDRATES deliver ready-to-use energy and delay bonking by sparing glycogen.
AMINO ACIDS educe mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
CAFFEINE enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort during exercise.
Each sleeve of Energy Chews contains eight pieces (two servings) and come in boxes of 18 sleeves (144 pieces). Each serving of four-pieces delivers 80 calories.
Consume half a sleeve of Energy Chews (four pieces) 5 minutes before and every 45 minutes during activity.
Wash down with your favourite GU Hydration Drink or water for optimum absorption.
Made with vegan ingredients.
GU ENERGY CHEWS FAQ
Should I use GU Energy Chews instead of GU Energy Gel?
We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane Energy Gel) is the ideal source of fuel for an athlete while training or racing, but just in case you crave something to sink your teeth into, we’ve created GU Energy Chews. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chewable form.
Do GU Energy Chews have caffeine?
The Strawberry and Black Cherry flavors have 20mg of caffeine per serving, and Raspberry has 40mg, while Blueberry Pomegranate, Orange, and Watermelon are caffeine free.
How many packets of GU Energy Chews do I need?
1 packet of Chews contains 1 serving, or 4 chews, which will provide enough fuel for 30 to 45 minutes. That said, all athletes are different and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Remember to hydrate along the way!
How long do GU Energy Chews take to work?
Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chews should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.
Is GU Chews Kosher?
GU Energy Gel, Roctane Energy Gel, GU Hydration Drink Mix, GU Hydration Drink Tabs, Roctane Energy Drink Mix, Roctane Electrolyte Capsules, and GU Recovery Drink Mix are all certified Kosher. Chews are not.
